During an August 1 appearance on SiriusXMit is “Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk”, Bret Michaels revealed that POISON fans may have to wait until 2025 to see the band performing again after “The Stadium Tour”. Requested by host Eddie Trunk elaborate on his touring plans for the foreseeable future, Brett said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “For me, next year, I put it off until this year, because we didn’t know this year… With everything going on in the world, we didn’t know if “The Stadium Tour” was going to go [ahead in 2022]. I prayed every day – I say to myself: ‘I hope it will be ok’. I’ve been waiting for ’20’. The first words that come out of my mouth besides thanking the fans, the bands and the team, I say to myself: “I’ve been waiting for this for two, almost three years” [since] we announced “The Stadium Tour”. But for me, this year we were going to do the “Festival Gras” round. I put together something amazing, and now we’re going to launch it in 23. And when I tell you what it is and how we designed it with everyone, it’s an amazing amphitheater tour that’s going to be – I think it’s going to be crazy and it’s going to be the “all thriller, no filler” summer party. And you’ll know what I mean when he hits the stage. It’s really an exciting idea.”
asked if the “Festival Gras” tour would include his own band or POISON, Brett said, “That would be my own band, in ’23. I’m just saying ’25 is probably when POISON will put on a gigantic world tour and come back and be amazing. And it will be great. My “Festival Gras”all this amphitheater thing that we do and festivals, as soon as we knew we were doing “The Stadium Tour”we moved this to ’23 and we have to do “The Stadium Tour”which is amazing.”
Regarding the other artists who will participate in the “Festival Gras” round, Brett said, “We [already] to know [who it is]; we don’t want to say it yet. When you see the concept that I wrote… Like I said, it’s all thriller, no filler, all original singer, just hits that will just roll. Really, when I use the words “just a good vibe” or “just a good time,” it’s going to be that kind of night. And we only choose selected dates in all amphitheaters, nation live amphitheaters and then take it to festivals and all that.”
POISONlong-delayed North American trek with DEF LEPPARD, MOTLEY CRUE and JOAN JETT AND THE BLACK HEARTS was originally planned for 2020, then moved to 2021 and then to 2022. “The Stadium Tour” will wrap up September 9 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In 2018, POISON finished on “Nothing but a Good Time” tour with CHEAP TIP and POP BAD.
POISONThe last album of new material of 2002 “HollyWeird”. A covers album, “Poisoned”followed in 2007.
In 2018, POISON bass player Bobby Dal said the band “should” make a new studio album but claimed he was unsure if that would happen. “I’m not going to bullshit you and say there’s [new music] In the process [of being made],” he said Everything that tears. “Would I like there to be? Yes. But, it’s a matter of time for everyone. Everyone in the group has other commitments. Some members have younger children than others. So between those two issues, it’s hard, and, you know, [there are] health problems as we age. Should we make a new record? Yes definitely. But will it happen? I do not know.”
In a 2017 interview, POISON drummer broken rocket acknowledged that part of the reason the band was not motivated to work on new music was the fact that fans rarely showed interest in hearing new material played live when bands classic rock were going on tour. “We could write the second coming of “Talk Dirty to Me”, and I don’t know if people want to hear it or not, and it’s a frustrating thing; it really is,” he said.AEROSMITH was able to do it, but not everyone is. I mean even THE ROLLING STONES have had problems with this for the past few years. Then I do not know. But I think it’s important to stay viable. For the ‘über fans’, it’s always a very, very good thing. And that’s why you do it – you do it for yourself, you do it for the real fans, the real real fans.”
More recently, rocket admitted that he and other members of POISON have some resentment towards michaelswhose frequent touring as a solo artist forced the band to take a five-year hiatus from the road.
“I think we need to get away from each other and do something else, but at the same time I think he spent a little too much time away,” rocket said. “There’s definitely resentment, but not resentment like I want him to fail. I want him to do good. I just want POISON important too, and I would like [him] put a little more energy into POISON.”
